About this Recording
Johan de Meij’s symphony ‘The Lord of the Rings’ - A Twenty-Five Year Retrospective

MEIJ, J. de: Symphonies Nos. 1, 2, 3 (Peabody Conservatory Wind Ensemble, Parker)

Award-winning conductor and composer Johan de Meij’s First Symphony ‘The Lord of the Rings’ is a spectacular evocation in five portraits and scenes based on Tolkien’s tale of a grand quest and the struggle of good against evil. The Second Symphony is an ode to the symmetry of New York’s streets and its massive architecture, as well as a tribute to the American styles of Copland and Bernstein, while the cinematic effects of the Third Symphony form an epic paean to the entire earth in all its miraculous beauty.
